Fresh photos of HTC’s first-ever Android Ice Cream Sandwich-powered phone have leaked online, along with bare-bones specs.
The HTC Ville first cropped up earlier this month, causing a stir among tech-heads principally because it was rumoured to feature an unfeasibly sinewy quad-core processor at its heart.
Today, PocketNow has sourced some new snaps and specs. And the news is somewhat mixed.
In the plus column, the Ville will reportedly come in just 8mm thick – making it the Taiwanese phone-maker’s slimmest smartie so far.
But – as every self-denying, miserable dieter knows - there’s a price to pay for that kind of svelte-ness. The mini dimensions mean that rather than the quad core processor we’d been promised, we’re in for a relatively common or garden 1.5Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon Series 4 processor instead.
Other specs mooted to be on board the Ville, which is set to debut around February next year, take in an eight-megapixel camera with HD video recording, the latest 4.0 version of HTC’s Sense custom user interface and a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with qHD resolution.
